If you even think you might use your trolling motor in Saltwater get the SW version. You can get by with the FW motors for awhile by cleaning them with something like Salt away right after use but the salt will take it's toll quickly. The Saltwater models have completely sealed electronics and sacrifial anodes that help keep the salt out of the motors.
